Michigan State opened up their 2016 campaign with a win 28-13 over FCS opponent Furman. The game was not the blowout many expected it to be with some uncharacteristic penalties stalling drives and an offense that still seemed to be finding its rhythm.

Captains Tyler O'Connor and Riley Bullough were optimistic from what they saw with an eye to Notre Dame more than two weeks away.

Tight End Josiah Price talked about how penalties, specifically two of his own, halted drives and how they need to clean that up before Notre Dame.

Co-Offensive Coordinator Dave Warner sees many problem areas but noting that can't be fixed in practice. He also talked about the backfield situation heading into South Bend.

Coach Dantonio delivered a familiar message to start, and described the great challenge ahead of the team in South Bend.

LJ Scott was content with the win, but frustrated with all the rotating. Especially in the backfield, on offense.
